Half Human, Half Car

Last weeks Thursday was not but an ordinary day. First, it was the last summer day this year. And the second my friend and I went to the car exhibition, which was, of course, not just several Opels or Fords displayed. The exhibition was proudly called Moscow International Automobile Salon-2006, and it definitely deserved this loud name.

The gems of car industry were displayed in the Crocus Expo Exhibition Centre not the nearest-to-the-centre showground in Moscow it took us about an hour and a half to get to the place of the event, as we still dont have a car (we hoped to find some nice and worth buying vehicles at the exhibition). Luckily the buses were running to the Crocus Expo from Planernaya metro station.

A trick helped us to enter the centre for free a friend, whom I wont name in order not to harm his reputation, gave us The Exhibitor badges, allowing free entrance to all exhibition areas. And trumpets its high time to tell you some tasty facts about humans best friends, if this definition fits an inanimate thing.

Several cars made me ecstatic, and BMW H2R was among them. This car prototype seems to have arrived from a science fiction film this silver capsule picks up the speed of 100 km per hour in less than 6 seconds. The heart of the car is 285 horsepower engine, which allows maximum speed of 300 km per hour. I really think Batmobile is no more worlds No. 1 car.

The second delicacy, making my mouth water, was Toyota Yaris DJ modification. This concept car has special design for party monsters Technics decks for playing music and mixing the vinyl plates, three displays for music videos and about ten loudspeakers and a subwoofer. Since this car appeared the party is always with you take your friends to the country and make the quiet suburbs explode with your favourite music tracks. Some drum-and-bass will do the day.

Theres one more, I dont know how to call it, let the term be a device, so I want you to make a slight touch of an unusual device its a human-like robot Asimo. This humanoid was created by the Honda Corporation and is capable of synchronous contact with people thanks to full control system a special development of Honda professionals. This system allows Asimo to perform some office activities, for instance, work at the reception or deliver necessary papers and coffee. The appearance of the machine reminded me that era of robots inhabiting Mother Earth is not as far as one may think. High technologies are evidently coming into ordinary life so dont miss a chance to get involved.
